Hi there.

Do you get increased sweating, frequent headaches, fatigue ?

Do you have high blood pressure ?

There could be an irregular heartbeat or arrhythmia. This could be due to many possible causes. Hypertension ca also be associated with arrhythmias.

Acid reflux will cause burning central chest pain, nausea, vomiting, which gets relieved on drinking cold milk and consuming antacids.

Avoid heavy meals at night. Avoid high protein diet at night. Drink 1-2 litres of water daily.

Normal heartbeat is between 60-100 per minute. It would be best to get examined by a Doctor for blood pressure, heart rate, get an EKG done as well. This will be able to point out an Arrhythmia.

Wishing good health.
